The winning song was chosen from 500+ entries by a panel of high profile music industry judges:- Joss Stone, Mike Rutherford (Genesis), Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2), Eddy Temple Morris (Virgin Radio FR), Sunta Templeton (The Chris Moyles Show On Radio X), Nicky Bignell (Head of Music BBC), Chris De Burgh and more!
On the winning song, Dave Stewart said: “The gentle piano approach to the song is alluring, the second verse in this song is lyrically strong, honest and compelling with her vocal intensifying just enough to feel her anger and get the listener emotionally involved. I chose this song because of the honesty in the vocals and the lyrics mixed with the minimalist approach to the recording, God is there in the space between the notes.“
Songs of War is organised by Soundcheque and sponsored by Hard Rock Cafe London, in support of War Child UK and in partnership with BASCA, SYNCR Music and Virgin Radio UK
